Subject:	Resolutions from todays WCAG WG related to  WCAG2ICT




From the minutes of the meeting


  RESOLUTION: To add the following to the understanding document for SC
  1.2.4 This success criterion was intended to apply to broadcast of
  synchronized media and is not intended to require that two-way multimedia
  calls between two or more individuals through web apps must be captioned
  regardless of the needs of users. Responsibility for providing captions
  would fall to the content providers (the callers) or the “host” caller,
  and not the application.
  RESOLUTION: To add the following to the Understanding document for SC
  1.2.9 This success criterion was intended to apply to broadcast of audio
  and is not intended to require that two-way audio calls between two or
  more individuals through web apps must be captioned regardless of the
  needs of users. Responsibility for providing captions would fall to the
  content providers (the callers) or the “host” caller, and not the
  application.
  RESOLUTION: To Add the following 2 paragraphs to Understanding document
  for SC 2.4.7 The purpose of this success criterion is to help a person
  know which element among multiple elements has the keyboard focus. If
  there is only one keyboard actionable control on the screen, the success
  criterion would be met because the visual design presents only one
  keyboard actionable item.
       Note that a keyboard focus indicator can take different forms. One
  common way is a caret within the text field to indicate that the text
  field has the keyboard focus. Another is a visual change to a button to
  indicate that that button has the keyboard focus.
  RESOLUTION: To modify the end of the first paragraph of the INTENT of SC
  3.3.4 to read: Likewise, it may be an unrecoverable error if users
  unintentionally modify or delete data stored in a database that they
  later need to access, such as their entire travel profile in a travel
  services web site. When referring to modification or deletion of 'user
  controllable' data, the intent is to prevent mass loss of data such as
  deleting a file or record. It is not the intent to require a confirmation
  for each save command or the simple creation or editing of documents,
  records or other data.

The text for understanding blocks in the WCAG2ICT work pages have been
amended to reflect these changes to Understanding WCAG 2.0.  For clarity
the edits are shown in bold font and [square brackets] to make it easier to
find the edits.
